Being able to obtain accurate property information is key to helping make sure you are providing the best combination of price and coverage.
Over the last few years, HazardHub has been developing a platform that provides consumers with geospatial risk data such as Distance to Fire Station, Distance to Hydrant, Distance to Shore, Elevation, and Flood Zone determination tools.
HazardHub has recently released a web-based tool for agents, underwriters, and anyone else interested in fast, accurate property hazard risk and property data called AgentRiskView™.
According to John Siegman of HazardHub, “We get more than 1,000 visitors to our website every day, looking up data one record at a time. We saw that many of these users were insurance agents, CSRs, and underwriters. These same users were clamoring for an easy to use subscription product that would deliver all of the data they wanted for an address. To meet the demand, we developed AgentRiskView.”
AgentRiskView provides fast and easy access to HazardHub’s collection of robust data tools, all by simply entering an insured’s address. AgentRiskView will instantly deliver both a high-resolution image of the property and the data agents need to complete insurance applications. A single portal helps streamline the process of searching locations for Fire Stations and Fire Hydrants or wondering exactly how far from the coast property is located. AgentRiskView also provides a host of agent personalization tools, including the agent’s picture and contact information.
The AgentRiskView report provides:
- Basic provides property location and elevation.
- AAIS fire protection code.
- Nearest two fire stations with station type, drive distance, and drive time.
- Nearest hydrant or nearest perennial water.
- FEMA flood zone.
- The HazardHub Flood model.
- The HazardHub SurgeMax model.
AgentRiskView Advanced adds additional HazardHub risk elements, including:
- HazardHub’s Wildfire Model.
- Enhanced Wind, Hail, Tornado, and Lightning Scores, as well as an ever-expanding number of HazardHub driven perils.
Future versions will include the above information plus property characteristics and property value. Additional services are in the planning stage.
Bob Frady, CEO of HazardHub, adds, “For too long, the insured has been blind to the perils surrounding their property, mostly due to the exorbitant cost of getting this data into the agent’s hands. We’re very excited to introduce AgentRiskView to agents, brokers, or anyone else who wants to help their insureds manage risk. We believe that agents will continue to play a critical role in the selling of insurance. AgentRiskView will provide agents with a powerful tool to help their insureds understand the risk around their property, turning the agent into a trusted and valuable risk mitigation resource.”
AgentRiskView Basic is available immediately at https://www.agentriskview.com. AgentRiskView Advanced will be available soon.
